3:33pm
the tags were produced and then removed the following year when president bush took office. they have lived in the hat-trick four years and seen how unfair it is for the working families to work hard, raise children and pay taxes without a vote in congress. unyear if it will result in policy initiatives. what was child's play for two 6-year-old boys apparently looked like a serious threat at a maryland school. the local media reports they were furious when the children were suspended for making imaginary guns with their fingers in recess. another child suspended this month to pretend to fire
3:34pm
imaginary gun more than once. the school reversed its decision. the flu epidemic resulted in a game change. the manhattan soccer club has banned high-fiving and hand shaking at all youth soccer games. after governor andrew cuomo declared public health emergency. the club suggests instead of shaking hands or high-fiving, they touch elbows. we told you earlier president obama outlined the vision today for combating gun violence. among other things he is calling for research in the effects violent video game have on the people who play them. but chief washington correspondent james rosen reports, that action appeared to be the only one on the list when it came to gaming for hollywood.
3:35pm
tatics aim at the nra wayne lapierre but the outcome is so gory we are not showing it to you. considering how violence can be. >> i will ask them to study best ways to reduce it. congress should fund research in the effects of the violent video game have on young minds. >> that was the president's only proposal to check the bloody onslaught that comes year in and year out from hollywood and gaming industry. >> we were told we'd have a grand national dialogue about the roots of violence in the society. it looks like the entertainment industry is getting off flight. most of the people are huge backers politically. it would be very much within his bailiwick to call on them be responsible with the material they produce and distribute. he failed to do that. >> we agree that the entertainment and video game industries have responsibility to give parents tools and choices.

3:40pm
♪ ♪ >> it's time for congress to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. congress should restore a ban on military style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. we'll need voices in the area and congressional districts where the tradition of gun ownership is strong to speak up. to say this is important. it can't just be the usual suspects. >> president obama called for congressional action. and assault weapons ban as well as a ban of high capacity magazines. with more than ten rounds. he signed this. 3 executive actions ranging from ordering the federal agencies to make more data available for background checks to demanding more research on gun violence.
3:41pm
this is the list of all of them. there some on mental health and call to review things and launching programs. but as far as doing concrete things about guns,be they don't do a lot in the executive actions. the sweeping action he is calling for is congressional action. let's bring in the panel. steve hayes for "weekly standard." juan williams columnist for the hill. and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. you looked at the 23 executive actions. what are you saying he is going to push for in congress? what is the reality and what are you thinking of his action today? this is action that wouldn't have an immediate long-term far reaching impact. >> they enforce existing law.
3:42pm
>> right. >> things we talk about the panel before. >> on the legislative side we heard the president say we need people speaking in out the areas traditionally pro-gun. he needs to say that. because i would say the legislative package he is talking about, and it's unclear whether they do it all at once or try to break it up. that depends on how it moves through congress. it's not likely to succeed. he is not likely to get the big measures through the assault weapons ban. you heard the reservation about harry reid. it's difficult to get it through the house of representatives. magazine clip size is already meeting resistance. they could expand background checks. but a new senator said she
3:43pm
didn't agree with the policy. >> this is not discussed in the media. the reason they face problems is the democrats. he is going to push them with the arm twisting and favors and other things to encourage them to support him. that is the problem. the democrats are split. >> bret: remember when president george w. bush won re-election and he went to a news conference and he was going to expand capital to get social security reform through. he wants gun control through. can he do that much like president george w. bush promised to do with social
3:44pm
security? president bush didn't. he ran in a brick wall. >> he said that he had political capital in the aftermath of this. there were discussions about the fiscal cliff. believing that they cited with him and not republican. this is imposed on him. this is because of the inaction with gun control after gabrielle giffords, the congressman from arizona was shot. now, i'm glad that you put hit the way, you will see the outside forces engaged in a political campaign. there are polls today that there has been a shift and there are more americans that are open to the idea. even people who are gun owner
3:45pm
owners. they come back for the background checks. the idea that anybody gets a gun should be educated on how to use the gun. closing the gun show loophole. these are things that especially people in the nra are willing to discuss. some might have political future but republicans stop this. >> they turn against the gun control in '790s and slaughtered in the mid-term election in '94. he said i won't present anything to the senate that won't pass the house. i don't want to force the democrats from the red state osposing the legislation to make a suicidal vote in
3:46pm
support of this. there was a genuine response to the massacre in newtown that moved him but the problem is he doesn't know what to do. no one knows what to do. the thing he signed today the executive orders are useless. it's the appearance of motion. it's sincere and he wants to do a little at the edges. the research here. he is saying that the items are the ban on assault weapons and the magazines and the idea of having background checks. they are not going to pass.
3:47pm
the country isn't ready to do anything near that. >> bret: nra released ad online. that raised eyebrows. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? why is he spectacle about putting armed dirt in schools. when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school. mr. obama demand the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes but just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun-free zones for ours. >> white house was quick to respond. jay carney saying, "most americans agree that the president children should not be used as pawns in a political fight. but to go so far to make the safety of the president children the subject of the attack ad is repug nant and cowardly." down the row quickly.
3:48pm
>> even if you believe it's hypocritical as i to and substantive argument that they are making it doesn't make sense to make the president of the united states sympathetic that many americans identify with him as a father. >> it's a vile ad. every president's children are protected. i don't know why you highlight two kids that are vulnerable who go to school in this day. >> as usual, unsubtle. the president's kids are targets and they need special protection. to compare them with kids anywhere else is ridiculous logically. the way it's done with the anger and the accusation of hypocrisy is designed to turn people off and i think it does. >> can i say quickly it was also inappropriate for the president to use children at his press conference in the manner he did to sell gun control.
3:49pm
it was inappropriate and exploytive. >> bret: next up, western intervention in africa could have led to american hostages in algeria. that situation is developing at this hour.
3:50pm
3:51pm
3:52pm
>> bret: an attack today on national gas complex by b.p. in algeria. they attacked the complex today killing two. dozens of foreigners kidnapped, among them at least three americans. we are told this is a big operation. this is still on going at the time. we have the house intelligence committee chairman, look at
3:53pm
facility now, surrounded by the local a veerian military we're told. chairman of the house intelligence committee said the kidnapping of the americans and westerners in algeria, brazenly raises the stakes in volatile region. the obama administration needs clear and focused policy to eliminate the threat that thety verse al-qaeda affiliateed groups pose to united states and americans working abroad off of the usual battlefields. additionally this administration needs to better understand the specific threats posed by aqim. and other al-qaeda affiliated groups. they will only pose increased threat in the future as they have in benghazi. now a veeria and mali.
3:54pm
this group was retaliating because they let them use air space to attack the islamic terrorists. >> it shows how the reason become no man land dominated by the islamists. >> this is an outlier. the same affiliated groups. and the groups in the regionbe saw that complete lack of response in seriousness by the united states about the benghazi attack and the leading suspect in the attack. goingbe openly in the streets of benghazi. they see that the world had not responded when they took over half a country in mali, not like afghanistan at the end of the world. in the heart of the west essentially. we are organizing group of
3:55pm
excolonies to send troops that would not alive until the fall. the french sparked the response from aqim. they want to see what the west will do. i suspect the west will not do a lot. >> the west should do a lot. this is the standard terrorist attacktivity in the world. are people willing to take action? a complicating factor today is the state department says to the military that there are rules against you going in. this is opening door to extremist activity. the state department does not want military intervention. i don't think the military wants direct intervention. but they wantbe to help the
3:56pm
french. we are moving in the direction that says this is time. no question. these are bad people. >> bret: steve, to charles' point about not getting to the bottom of benghazi and going after those terrorists, who killed the u.s. ambassador there, and seeing that tunisia let go, do you agree it sends a message? >> no question. this is not just benghazi. remember, on september 11, the days immediately following we had attacks on the u.s. facilities throughout the region. we have had attacks on the embassy in tunisia. on september 14. you had the flag flying in egypt. you had all of the attacks on u.s. interest throughout the region with basically no response from the u.s. government. i don't think there is any question that they are emboldened. the key thing to remember here. we talk about this last night. the groups have been growing in strength over the past several years.
3:57pm
this is not the first person to do it. the commander in july said, "the u.s. government missed an opportunity to deal with al-qaeda in the aqim when they had a chance." that devastating indictment from the administration. >> bret: we will hear more about the policy arguments ahead of secretarybe clinton testifying january 23 about benghazi, too. that is it for the panel. but stay tuned to see a video that may be too close for comfort. living with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis
